‘THE ISLAND OF THE KNIGHTS’

Rhodes is a cosmopolitan resort with a history of 4000 years. It is located in the SE end of the Aegean and is the biggest island of the Dodecanese with an area of 1400 sq. km and a population of over 122.000 inhabitants. The city of Rhodes is built in the northern end of the island and has all the characteristics of a modern city with a history that varies from the Antiquity to the medieval times and from the Byzantine to the Recent Years. At the entrance to the harbour (Mandraki), two deer made of copper are standing in the place where according to the tradition the Colossus was located, one of the Seven ancient Wonders of the World. The Medieval Town of Rhodes (the Old Town) is  recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is an integral piece of the city of Rhodes. Within the Medieval walls, you can admire squares with fountains, museums, art galleries, churches, Turkish baths, the Palace of the Grand Master or the famous Street of the Knights. The Old Town constitutes a living piece of the past and the heart of new Rhodes as it is the only inhabitable Old town in the world. Rhodes has a large International Airport and a developed network of maritime transports.
